AAA Editor Notes

The Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden is at jct. SRs 61 and 132 at 9 Main St. N. The site was the 18th-century home of Rev. Joseph Bellamy, a prominent Congregational minister. In 1912 Henry Ferriday of New York purchased the sprawling farmstead and made it his family's early 20th-century summer home; his daughter, Carolyn Woolsey Ferriday, continued stewardship until her death in 1990; she bequeathed the wooded property to the Bethlehem Land Trust and the buildings and gardens to Connecticut Landmarks. You'll see American and European antiques, historic barns and outbuildings and a formal garden laid out in 1915.
